Gotta admit I never thought I'd see Woodys Truck Stop mentioned here,it's been a long time since I've come across that name.

Hi,I'm new here and the Todd Rundgren post caught my eye.I must agree I saw him many times back in the seventies and early eighties. He was(is)a great songwriter and a very underated guitar player.And if that weren't enough he should be in there as a producer alone.

I've seen TR almost as many times i've seen the boys, and can really say that his shows are always entertaining. A true iconoclast. He was put up during the seventies as one of the premier guitar gunslingers, and could certainly hold his own with guys like Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, and Steve Hackett. I think, at least, but certainly, though he's always pushed himself as a musician, and a song writer, for some reason, he only gets respect in the industry, and with a reasonably small core group of fans. He never sits still, is always growing, trying new things, a strong innovator...

OK, I'll stop now.

I would recommend "Another Live" "Back to the Bars" and there's a relatively recent show from San Francisco:

Great stuff.

Not to mention the wide range of productions. He's wonderful.

hi shine420

would you be so kind as to suggest what you feel to be some of his most definitive performances? preferably live w/jamming...and possibly with an on-line link?

thanks

I don't have any and I'm not sure where to find some,I wish I could.But any early Utopia from say '74 thru '77.On the album Todd Rundgren's Utopia there is a live version of "The Icon".That should give you a good idea of what I'm talking about.
